It's Hard Being A Woman; A Smear Test Uncovered

Well, it's true though, isn't it? We have the babies, the periods and the mounting pressure of having the most on point eyebrows. This week I had my second cervical screening (formerly known as a smear test) of my life, and I just thought it would make quite an interesting and informative blog post and miles different from my upcoming Christmas ones. So apologies beforehand if you are easily squeamish. You have been warned!

My Weekend Rituals

I thought I would do a post on weekends, and my top picks for what I like to do on them. I absolutely adore my weekends. It's my time to catch up on everything I haven't had time to do during the week because of work etc.

Can't Live With 'Em

Can't live without them.. well, I can, but only for a night or two tops. I was going to do a moaning post on how annoying he is when he leaves his socks in the bed, or doesn't tidy up after himself, but then I thought I would go in a completely different direction and do a post about the necessity of 'me' time, and the top 10 things we (I) do when we are given the night off from our other half.

Driving Miss Daisy; What To Do In An Accident

So, I was recently in my first car accident. Completely not my fault! I was just unlucky enough to be in front of someone who ran a red light, who wasn't paying attention, and didn't stop in time. It was like being in a bumper car. I actually couldn't believe it at first, and thought it might have been someone else. However, realisation quickly dawned. But, I mean, what do you do in this situation? When you are learning to drive, you aren't taught what to do in in this sort of crisis. I guess it's kind of counter intuitive to talk about crashing when you are still only learning!

Sharing My Shelves: #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso

I know, I am a bit late getting this post out. I still need to review my last read 'After You' by Jojo Moyes. And can you believe I have gone and started another book too? I have also been reading the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas on my commute, as I have those books to hand on my Kindle.

Recipe: Comforting Cherry & Vanilla Madeira Cake

Winter is officially upon us, therefore it is time to break out the comfort food, not that I ever needed an excuse to eat cake before! This is a lovely, simple recipe and very filling. I have been wanting to make a Madeira cake in ages, I love how dense it is compared to a Victoria Sponge, I guess I was just looking for the right recipe.

It's Just A Little Frosting

I love buying jewellery. (I love it even more if it is bought for me) I definitely think it is a woman's prerogative to be treated to something sparkly at least twice a year (Birthdays and Christmas of course, anything more then that is just a bonus!) I get an extra special tingly feeling whenever I get a new piece. I can be quite picky though, and I usually only go for lighter metals such as silver/white gold/platinum and rose gold. I am not so much a yellow gold type of gal, but I never say never when it comes to frosting.

Recipe: Indulgent Millionaire's Shortbread

Indulgent Millionaire's Shortbread
I love making my own Millionaire's Shortbread. It tastes so much better than when you buy it in the shops, plus it is relatively cheap to make and it goes further.

My New York Haul

Tiffany & Co
Undoubtedly New York is the best place to shop, hands down. There is everything you could ever wish for, or as much as your luggage allowance permits! I thought it only right that I dedicated a whole post to my spoils.
